THE BLACK CHURCH, FREEDOM AND CIVIL RIGHTS

SATURDAY, JAN. 10, HILLSBOROUGH

RICHARD E. WHITTED BUILDING—Martin Luther King Jr. biopic Selma opens in theaters this week (see our review on page 29), a broad reminder of the crucial role of African-American churches in the Civil Rights Movement. For a more intimate and contemporary vantage, try this photography exhibit and storytelling afternoon presented by Free Spirit Freedom, a Hillsborough Arts Council initiative to promote artistic contributions by often-marginalized people of color in Orange County. From 2:30 to 3 p.m. in the newly renovated Whitted Building, a reception features Jacquelin Liggins' photographs of historic African-American churches in Hillsborough. From 3 to 5 p.m., members of several local congregations share their memories, illuminating the church's impact on their lives and the county. 2:30 p.m., free, 300 W. Tryon St., 919-451-1844, www.freespiritfreedom.org. Brian Howe
